comment Sharepoint High Disk I/O - WSS_Search_SBS2011.mdf
Yeah but I don't want to 'break' anything... This is SBS after all! Will give it a try and report back!

Did you disable it using the method you outlined above?

I'll attempt this, as previously commented I had stopped it from Services to find it auto-restarts as other services depend on it.

Disabling SharePoint on SBS isn't a good idea as many other things seem to rely on it...

It automatically restarts as other instances and services use it.

Sorry MD only caught the notifications today (and the bounty had expired). Will go through Snowburnt's suggestion when I have time (and next connected to the site). Will mark as correct if it solves the I/O.

I'd kinda given up hope, anything over 6 months (and only 60 views) doesn't tend to get much attention!

It seems IT were not consulted when someone from the old Management team chose this SBS 2011 server (ML350 G6) as an 'Email Solution' - for 3 users at a remote site. It's complete overkill, but also not man enough (spec wise) to run SBS2011 well and some 3rd party database software. Yet it's now left for IT to 'resolve' with ZERO budget! (Means I've spent months already trying to improve performance!)

This is SBS2011, I found very little information when looking to disable SharePoint. The majority of places say to not uninstall/disable it?! The poor Server only has SATA disks so I'm not surprised it's struggling!

Ok thanks, tested here successfully, but not on a WS2008 machine (thankfully don't have any of them here!) ;)

Am I correct in thinking that arguments in a batch file have to be used with a dash - rather than a backslash / ?

comment Would rebooting the server in a schedule be good idea for performance?
Amazing answer Kyle, wish I'd had one of these months ago on my SBS2011 performance related questions! Have hit each of the things you mention through my own (many months of) research. Still hitting issues but that's another matter.

comment Why do ethernet cables have 8 wires?
Have successfully run gigabit connections over older CAT5 cable (laid in 2001) at a distance of appox 60m. No signal loss/drop in speed/lost packets after many months of use.
